For this example, we'll type 2Ti 3:16. SwordSearcher understands many different ways of specifying a verse. We could  just as easily type 2nd Timothy 3.16, or even 2Tim iii. 16. Use what works best for you. After pressing the Enter key, three things happen right away:

 

1. The Bible panel is set to 2nd Timothy, chapter 3, verse 16:
